How do I request medical records?

Information for your own record or the record of a dependant / family member can be requested from the Clinical Records service.

Please note: If the request is for the clinical record of a family member who is not a dependant (16 years or under) then that person's consent is required in writing.

The request must be in writing and include the completed Release of Information form [PDF, 573 KB] OR the following information:

  • Patient first name and surname
  • Patient Date of Birth
  • Patient NHI number (if known)
  • Specific details of the information you require including dates of hospital admissions
  • Your name (if not the patient)
  • Your contact number, mailing address and email
  • Proof of identity (drivers licence or passport).

Email or mail the request to the Release of Information Team:
